December 1, 1950 



REPORTS OF COMMITTEES 



Committee reports were submitted as indicated below. No request under the statute was made by any 
two aldermen present to defer any of said reports, for final action thereon, to the next regular meeting of 
the Council, except where otherwise indicated below. 



COMMITTEE ON FINANCE, 



Issuance and Sale of New Tax Anticipation Warrants 

Authorized for Purpose of Restoring 

Certain City Funds. 

The Committee on Finance submitted a report 
recommending that the following proposed ordinance 
submitted therewith do pass: 

An Ordinance 
Authorizing the Re-Issue of Tax Anticipation War- 
rants Held as in Investment in the Funds of the 
City. 

Whereas^ The tax anticipation warrants issued 
by the City of Chicago, hereinafter described, were 
purchased with funds in the City treasury which 
were not immediately necessary for the particular 
purposes for which said funds were set aside and 
the taxes in anticipation of which said warrants 
were issued have not been received by the City; 
and 

Whereas, It is now deemed expedient to convert 
said tax anticipation warrants into money for the 
restoration of the funds invested in said tax antici- 
pation warrants for use for the particular purposes 
for which said funds were set aside ; now therefore, 

Be It Ordained by the City Council of the City of 

Chicago : 

Section 1. The City Comptroller and the City 
Treasurer hereby are authorized to issue and sell 
new warrants, as provided in Section 15-9 of the 
Revised Cities and Villages Act, in lieu of the 
following original tax anticipation warrants here- 
tofore issued by the City of Chicago and now held 
as an investment in the funds of the City:

The authority to issue the original warrants 
above described hereby is reaffirmed in all respects. 

Section 2. The new warrants hereby authorized 
to be issued and sold shall be of a like principal 
amount, for the same purpose and in anticipation 
of the same taxes as the original warrants were 
issued, and shall be subject to all the provisions in 
Sections 15-6 and 15-7 of the Revised Cities and 
Villages Act. The new warrants may have any 
date subsequent to the date of the original tax 
anticipation warrants, shall be of the denomination 
of $1000 or multiples thereof, shall bear interest 
not to exceed three per cent per annum from the 
date thereof until paid and shall be sold by the 
City Comptroller at not less than the par value 
thereof and accrued interest from the date thereof. 



Section 3. Simultaneously with the delivery of 
and receipt of payment for any of the new tax 
anticipation warrants, a like principal amount of 
the original warrants that were issued against the 
same tax that is anticipated by the new warrants, 
together with so much of the interest accrued 
thereon as the proceeds of the sale of the new tax 
anticipation warrants will permit, shall be paid 
and cancelled. 

The proceeds of the sale of the new tax antici- 
pation warrants shall be paid to the City Treasurer 
to restore the funds of the City of Chicago invested 
in the original tax anticipation warrants. Before 
cancellation of the principal amount of any original 
warrant, the City Treasurer shall separately en- 
dorse thereof the amount paid and the date of pay- 
ment in the following order: (1) the principal 
amount so paid and (2) the amount of accrued 
interest paid. The City Treasurer shall also en- 
dorse upon the original tax anticipation warrants 
the amount of interest accrued thereon and unpaid, 
and the same shall not be paid until all principal 
and interest upon the new warrants shall be fully 
paid or until money has been set aside for payment 
thereof, if the new warrants are not presented for 
payment after they are called for redemption. 

Section 4. This ordinance shall be in force from 
and after its passage and approval. 

On motion of Alderman Duffy the committee's 
recommendation was concurred in and said proposed

in the following communication addressed to the 
chairman and members of the Committee on Finance

highways : 

"Contracts M-1 and M-2, with the Otis Elevator 
Company, included the furnishing and installing 
of two escalators and thirteen escalators, respec- 
tively, in the Dearborn Street Subway. 



These escalators are similar in design to the 
escalators installed in the State Street Subway, 
where the adjoming walls extended down to the 
platform level. On account of this wall arrange- 
ment, the visibility of persons on the escalators 
was restricted and the circulation of air at the 
lower entrance to the escalator was not satis- 
factory. 

We have corrected these conditions by eliminat- 
ing from the Station Finish Contract F-4 a portion 
of the walls below the track level ceiling. This 
will require the furnishing and installing under 
Contracts M-1 and M-2 of an additional section 
of deckboard, panel, base and trim at each esca- 
lator. 

The Otis Elevator Company has submitted liunp 
sum proposals of $1,560.00 and $2,167.00 for per- 
forming this additional work under Contracts M-1 
and M-2, respectively. These proposals are rea- 
sonable and are less than the cost of wall and wall 
finish eliminated from Contract F-4. 

It is recommended, therefore, that you recom- 
mend to the City Council that it authorize the 
Commissioner of Subways and Superhighways to 
order the Otis Elevator Company to furnish and 
install deckboard, panel, base and trim at each of 
the escalators installed under Contract M-1 and 
M-2 for the lump sum amounts of $1,560.00 and 
$2,167.00, respectively. These changes are made 
for the comfort and safety of the subway riders 
and the additional cost is less than the cost of 
work eliminated from Contract F-4."

The communication referred to in the foregoing 
order (addressed to the chairman and members of 



the Committee on Finance under date of October 25, 
1950 and signed by Walter E. Lesak, assistant corpo- 
ration counsel ) reads as follows : 

"One of the cases pending against the City of 
Chicago for damages alleged to have been caused 
to private property by the construction of the State 
Street subway is that of B d R Investment Com- 
pany, et al. vs. City of Chicago, Circuit Court No. 
45-C-7746. The suit is an action to recover $27,- 
000.00 for alleged damages suffered by plaintiff as 
the owner of the property situated at 230 S. State 
Street and 1-7 W. Quincy Street. 

Following negotiations with plaintiff's attorney, 
plaintiff has agreed to accept $750.00 in full settle- 
ment of this claim. 

The subway tubes in State Street adjacent to 
the premises were constructed under Subway Con- 
tract S-3 from approximately July 1940 to Septem- 
ber 1940. The building consists of six stories and 
a basement and is 42 feet in width and 110 feet 
deep. The premises are used as a retail clothing 
store. During subway construction sections of 
vitrolite adorning the outside of the building 
cracked and metal window stops pulled apart. The 
terrazo floor on the first fioor developed cracks. 
Other floors in the building and walls also devel- 
oped slight cracks. The plaintiffs estimated that 
it would cost $2,500.00 to replace portions of the 
terrazo floor which were cracked on account of 
subway construction and they spent approximately 
$1,662.00 for engineering and other miscellaneous 
expenses due to subway construction work. 

The properties and paid bills for money spent 
were examined by W. G. Uffendell, building cost 
analyst for the City, and the matter has been dis- 
cussed with V. E. Gunlock, Commissioner of Sub- 
ways and Superhighways. They recommend that 
this claim be settled for $750.00. We attach hereto 
their recommendation. We consider it to be to 
the advantage of the City of Chicago to settle this 
claim. 

We respectfully recommend that the Corporation 
Counsel be authorized to have a judgment entered 
against the City of Chicago in this cause in the 
sum of $750.00, said sum to be paid from account 
No. 368-S-15. 

Attached hereto for your consideration is a form 
of council order providing for the settlement as 
above outlined."

The following is Exhibit 1 attached to the foregoing 
order : 

Exhibit 1. 

,, „ , , November, 15, 1950. 

Mr. Ralph Budd, 

Chairman, Chicago Transit Board, 

175 W. Jackson Blvd., 

Chicago, Illinois. 

Dear Sir: 

Reference is made to the proposed plan with 
which you are familiar, for operating Garfield 
Park Rapid Transit trains, and Chicago, Aurora & 
Elgm Railway trains at grade in W. Van Buren 
Street, between S. Sacramento Boulevard and S. 
Racine Avenue during the construction of the Con- 
gress Street Expressway and the West Side Sub- 
way. 

Under this plan it is proposed to continue the 
operation of the Garfield Park Rapid Transit serv- 
ice, and the Chicago, Aurora & Elgin suburban 
service by detouring these trains over tracks at 
street level in W. Van Buren Street, between 
Sacramento Boulevard and Racine Avenue The 
Douglas Park Rapid Transit service would be op- 
erated by routing the Douglas Park trains north 
over the present Logan Square structure, and then 
east over Lake Street to the Loop and return. The 
Logan Square and Humboldt Park trains would be 
routed through the new Dearborn Street Subway 
thus removing them from the present metropolitan 
elevated structure. 

This plan will require the following construc- 
tion : 

1. A temporary incline structure on high- 
way right-of-way, extending from a point just 
east ot S. Racine Avenue to a point between S 
Aberdeen and S. Morgan Streets, for the pur- 
pose of supporting two tracks, connecting the 
present two north elevated tracks with two 
tracks proposed to be built in Van Buren Street. 

2. The removal of the existing streetcar 
tracks and the installation of new trackage 
composed of T-section rails and tie blocks 



placed upon the existing ties (insofar as such 
existing ties are found useable) in W, Van 
Buren Street, between S. Racine Avenue and S. 
Francisco Avenue, a distance of approximately 
2.0 miles. Also included in this portion of the 
work is the repaving of the section of street in- 
cluded within the limits of construction of the 
new tracks in W. Van Buren Street; the instal- 
lation of trackage on the inclines described 
under Items 1 and 4, connecting the existing 
elevated tracks with the aforementioned new 
tracks in W. Van Buren Street, and the installa- 
tion of the necessary power distribution system 
within the limits of the new work. The extent 
of track work and electrical work is shown on 
the plan marked C.P.1411, attached hereto. 

3. The lowering of the grade of W. Van 
Buren Street under the railroad overpass at S. 
Rockwell Street to provide sufficient clearance 
for Chicago, Aurora & Elgin cars, and the con- 
struction of a pumping station for handling 
drainage in this underpass. 

4. A temporary incline structure to be built 
on a curve east of S. Sacramento Boulevard, 
from a point near S. Francisco Avenue to a 
point between W. Congress Street and W. Har- 
rison Street, for the purpose of supporting 
tracks connecting the tracks on the existing ele- 
vated structure with the tracks to be built at 
grade in W. Van Buren Street. This incline will 
be built in highway right-of-way south of W. 
Van Buren Street. 

5. A structure and trackage connecting the 
Douglas Park line and the Logan Square line 
at the Marshfield junction. 

6. A structure and trackage connecting the 
Logan Square line and the Lake Street line at 
their point of crossing near W. Lake Street and 
S. Paulina Street. 

7. A new passenger loading station to be 
built on the Logan Square line between S. 
Pauhna Street and W. Jackson Boulevard. 

In addition to the foregoing construction items, 
it will be necessary to equip the Garfield Park 
trains with trolleys and with disconnect switches 
so that the third rail shoes on these cars may be 
deenergized. 

In recent conferences between representatives of 
this Department and representatives of Chicago 
Transit Authority, it was tentatively agreed that 
CTA would (subject to the approval of Chicago 
Transit Board) perform the work outlined in Item 
2 of the foregoing list with its own forces. It was 
also agreed that CTA would equip the Garfield 
Park trains with trolleys and with the necessary 
disconnect switches referred to above. 

Preliminary estimates by members of your staff 
indicate that the track and paving work described 
under Item 2 of the foregoing list will cost ap-

charged to Section 2525-Track of the West Route 
Superhighway. Inasmuch as Federal-aid Highway 
Funds will participate in the cost of this project, 
it is necessary that the work described herein to 
be done by the Chicago Transit Authority be per- 
formed under force account in accordance with the 
provisions of the General Administrative Memo- 
randum No. 299 of the Bureau of Public Roads. 
Six copies of this memorandum have previously 
been transmitted to Mr. Boesen of your staff. 

I propose, therefore subject to the approval of 
the City Council, that Chicago Transit Authority 
furnish materials and labor for and carry out the 
work described in Item 2 hereof, together with 
providing materials and labor for equipping the 
Garfield Park trains with trolleys and disconnect 
switches; for all of which it will be repaid by the 
City in an amount equal to the actual cost of the 
labor and material required for such work, all 
under the terms of G.A.M. No. 299 of the Bureau of 
Public Roads. You are requested to sign and re- 
turn to this office one copy of this letter, signify- 
ing your agreement to perform the work described 
in this paragraph under the terms set forth herein. 

Inasmuch as the construction of the Congress 
Street Expressway between S. Sacramento Boule- 
vard and S. Racine Avenue cannot proceed until 
the elevated structure in this area is removed, we 
are most anxious that the detouring of trains over 
tracks at grade in W. Van Buren Street be accom- 
plished at the earliest possible moment. We 
would, therefore, urge that the Chicago Transit 
Authority proceed with the removal of the exist- 
ing streetcar tracks in W. Van Buren Street and 
the installation of new T-section rails at the earli- 
est possible moment. 

Yours very truly, 

(Signed) V. E. Gunlock, 
Commissioner of Subways 
and Superhighways. 

Accepted by authority of Chicago Transit Board.

able resources by more than $17,000,000. In addi- 
tion, wage demands were made by representatives 
of employes for wage increases, which if granted in 
full would have exceeded $16,000,000. 

It was impossible to do much about the very 
necessary items requested by Department heads. 
The plight of police, firemen, and other employes 
was such that emergency measures had to be 
taken; and a nominal wage increase ranging from 
$420 for policemen and firemen to $216 for lower 
paid clerical employes is set up in this ordinance. 

This increase in wages was made possible by 
the inclusion in our receipts of tax adjustments 
totaling $1,565,089, by new items of revenue 
amounting to $1,582,000, by a non-recurring item 
of $1,057,000; and by cutting major departments 
approximately 5 percent. 

During the last session of the legislature, and 
again in the 1950 special session, an urgent plea 
was made for the means or the authority to raise 
funds necessary to the proper performance of the 
necessary functions of municipal government. This 
plea must be renewed at the next regular session. 

The Committee on Finance respectfully requests 
that you give favorable consideration to its recom- 
mendations and adopt this report [ordinance 
printed in Committee Pamphlet No. 19] . 
Respectfully submitted, 

(Signed) John J. Duffy^ 

Chairman.

Progress Reports on Construction of Dearborn St. 
Subway, West Route and Wacker Drive Ex- 
tension OF Comprehensive SuPERHIGHV^^AY 
System — Placed on File. 

The Committee on Finance submitted reports rec- 
ommending that the City Council Place on File 
reports of the Commissioner of Subways and Super- 
highways advising as to progress on construction of 
the Dearborn Street Subway, West Route and Wacker 
Drive Extension of the Comprehensive Superhighway 
System. 

On motion of Alderman Duffy the committee's rec- 
ommendations were concurred in. 

Said reports, signed by V. E. Gunlock, Commis- 
sioner of Subways and Superhighways, dated October 
26 and 27, 1950, read respectively as follows: 

'"In order that your Committee and the City 
Council may be advised as to the progress being 
made on the construction of the Dearborn Street 
Subway, I wish to report as follows: 

The award of Contract E-3 of the Dearborn 
Street Subway to Kil-Bar Electric Company pro- 
viding for the furnishing and installing of electrical 
work for lighting and miscellaneous power, was 
authorized by the City Council April 4, 1949, (C. J. 
p. 3961). The specifications provide that the con- 
tract shall be completed by November 19, 1950. It 
is now apparent that this contract will not be com- 
pleted within the specified time. 

The contract provides that under certain con- 
ditions, the Commissioner of Subways and Super- 
highways may grant to the contractor an extension 
of time occasioned by delays which are entirely 
beyond the contractor's control. 

The contract also provides that if the contractor 
does not meet the requirements as to time, progress 
and final completion of the work within the period 
specified, then the City may declare the contract 
forfeited. However, inasmuch as it appears that 
the subway completion will not be delayed by per- 
mitting the contractor to finish this work, it is our 
opinion that the interests of the City will be best 
served by allowing the contractor, upon the con- 
sent of its surety, to continue and complete the 
contract, even though there be a technical default 
as to the time of completion." 



In _ order that your Committee and the City 
Council may be advised as to the progress being 
made on the construction of the Wacker Drive 
Extension, I wish to report as follows : 

The award of Contract Section 1212.2 (15535) 
of the Wacker Drive Extension to Herlihy Mid- 
Continent Company providing for the construc- 
tion of Wacker Drive from W. Washington Street 
to W. Randolph Street, was authorized by the Citv 
Council October 6, 1949, (C. J. p. 4840) The 
specifications provide that the contract shall be 
completed by November 23, 1950. It is now appar- 
ent that this contract will not be completed within 
the specified time. 

The contract provides that under certain condi- 
tions the Commissioner of Subways and Super- 
highways may grant to the contractor an extension 
ot time occasioned by delays which are entirely 
beyond the contractor's control. 

The contract also provides that if the contractor 
does not meet the requirements as to time prog- 
ress and final completion of the work within the 
period specified, then the City may declare the con- 



tract forfeited. However, inasmuch as it appears 
that the Wacker Drive completion will not be de- 
layed by permitting the contractor to finish this 
work, It is our opinion that the interests of the 
City will be best served by allowing the contractor 
upon the consent of its surety, to continue and 
complete the contract, even though there be a 
technical default as to the time of completion " 



In order that your Committee and the City 
Council may be advised as to the progress being 
made on the construction of the West Route Super- 
highway, I wish to report as follows : 

The award of Contract Section 2525.1-lB of the 
West Route Superhighway to Kenny Construction 
Company, providing for the construction of Peoria 
Street Bridge, was authorized by the City Council 
January 20, 1950, (C. J. p. 5643). The specifica- 
tions provide that the contract shall be completed 
by November 2, 1950. It is now apparent that this 
contract will not be completed within the specified 
time. 

The contract provides that under certain condi- 
tions, the Commissioner of Subways and Super- 
highways may grant to the contractor an exten- 
sion of time occasioned by delays which are en- 
tirely beyond the contractor's control. 

The contract also provides that if the contractor 
does not meet the requirements as to time, prog- 
ress and final completion of the work within the 
period specified, then the City may declare the con- 
tract forfeited. However, inasmuch as it appears 
that the superhighway completion will not be de- 
layed by permitting the contractor to finish this 
work. It is our opinion that the interests of the 
City will be best served by allowing the contractor, 
upon the consent of its surety, to continue and 
complete the contract, even though there be a tech- 
nical default as to the time of completion." 



Miscellaneous Matters — Placed on File.

ommending that the City Council Place on File certain

for an extension of the West Side Subway in the 
median strip of W. Congress Street to a point near 
S. Lotus Avenue, and further to revise the general 
plans and drawings for the West Side Subway so as

Ringa, Lancaster, Cullerton, Brody, Becker, Immel, 
Crowe, Bauler, Burmeister, Merryman, Young, Hoel- 
len. Freeman, Keenan, Weber — 49. 

Nays — None. 

The following is said ordinance as passed: 

Whereas, On October 31, 1940, the City Council 
of the City of Chicago passed an ordinance pro- 
viding for the improvement of the West Route of 



the Comprehensive Superhighway System in E. 
Congress Street, W. Congress Street and other 
streets and public ways (Journal of Proceedings 
of the City Council of October 31, 1940, pages 3310 
to 3324, both inclusive ) ; and 

Whereas, The" general plans and drawings which 
are a part of the ordinance passed October 31, 1940, 
as amended, provide for a median strip lying be- 
tween two limited access roadways of sufficient 
width to accommodate tracks and necessary facili- 
ties for a rapid transit railway; and 

Whereas, On December 30, 1946, the City Coun- 
cil of the City of Chicago passed an ordinance for 
the construction of the West Side extension of the 
Initial System of Subways, to be known as "West 
Side Subway", which ordinance, among other 
things, established the eastern terminus of the 
West Side Subway as the west terminus of the 
Dearborn Street Subway and the western terminus 
as S. Kedzie Avenue (Journal of Proceedings of 
the City Council of the City of Chicago of Decem- 
ber 30, 1946, pages 6817 to 6819, both inclusive,) ; 
and 

Whereas, By ordinance duly passed on October 
15, 1948, the City Council of the City of Chicago 
amended said ordinance of December 30, 1946, so 
as to provide for the relocation of the eastern 
terminus of the West Side Subway, the new loca- 
tion being described as approximately five hundred 
twenty feet (520') east of the east line of S. Canal 
Street and four hundred feet (400') south of W. 
Van Buren Street (Journal of Proceedings of the 
City Council of the City of Chicago of October 15, 
1948, pages 3056 to 3057) ; and 

Whereas, Further studies show it to be desirable 
to provide for the extension of the West Side Sub- 
way further westward in the median strip of the 
West Route of the Comprehensive Superhighway 
System to a point near S. Lotus Avenue and to 
amend the ordinance of December 30, 1946, as 
amended, and the general plans and drawings

ter-purification equipment employed for the 
treatment of water shall be of the type ap- 
proved by the board of health. Sand and char- 
coal filters and necessary appurtenances shall

ment, records shall be kept of the operation of 
the chlorinator or other device, including the re- 
sults of residual tests taken periodically. 

Records of the operation of water-treatment 
equipment, interruption of the supply or modifi- 
cations of the method of purification, shall be 
kept and also such records of changes of filter 
papers and cloths. These records shall be kept 
in a manner prescribed by the board of health.

plants hereafter constructed or reconstructed, 
the operations of washing, filling, compounding, 
or mixing of syrups, shall be performed in sepa- 
rate rooms, provided, that nothing herein con- 
tained shall prohibit the washing equipment 
being so arranged as to permit such portion of 
the mechanical bottle-washing apparatus where- 
in the sanitized bottles undergo final rinsing 
operations and from where such bottles emerge 
in a sanitized condition to extend into the filling 
room. In all such bottled-water plants hereafter 
constructed or reconstructed, before any equip- 
ment is installed, plans in duplicate shall be sub- 
mitted for approval to the board of health. These 
plans shall show the plan of the building, loca- 
tion and construction of syrup room, bottling 
room and bottle-washing room; also the location 
and layout of machinery and equipment and any 
other information which the board of health 
may require to pass on the sanitary facilities of 
the proposed plant. When the board of health 
is satisfied that the construction and layout of 
the proposed bottled-water plant meets the sani- 
tation requirements of this Code, one copy of 
the plan, bearing the approval stamp of the 
board of health, shall be returned to the appli- 
cant. 

In all existing bottled-water plants, the ma- 
chinery and equipment shall be laid out and lo- 
cated to effect such a separation of the washing, 
filling, compounding or mixing of syrups, and 
shipping operations as will insure complete 
elimination of contamination. Every layout for 
machinery and equipment in each plant shall 
be subject to the approval of the board of 
health and shall conform to all requirements of 
this Code, relating to health or sanitation, or 
of any rule or regulation of the board of health.

washed in a soaker-type washing device, the 
soaker solution shall contain not less than 3% 
alkali, of which not less than 60% should be 



caustic soda (NaOH), The operation of the de- 
vice should be such that bottles in the process 
of washing remain in the soaker solution for a 
period of not less than five minutes. During the 
washing operation, the temperature of the 
soaker solution should not fall below 130° F., 
provided, however, that where bottle-washing 
devices are geared to allow the bottles to remain 
in the soaker solution for less than five minutes, 
or where the temperature of the soaker solution 
is thermostatically controlled at a point above 
130° F., the time, temperature and caustic con- 
tent shown in the following table shall be used 
to insure proper washing and bactericidal treat- 
ment:

All bottle-washing devices shall be equipped 
with an accurate indicating thermometer which 
shall show the temperature of the soaker solu- 
tion, and which shall be so placed as to be in 
plain sight of the operator. After water or bev- 
erage bottles have been washed by any process 
provided in this Code, they shall not show a 
residual plate count of more than 1 bacteria 
per cubic centimeter of capacity when tested in 
accordance with the standard methods of the 
American Public Health Association. 

Nothing in this section shall prohibit the use 
of any other method approved by the board of 
health for washing and bactericidal treatment of 
bottles. 

130.1-22. Washing and bactericidal treat- 
ment of utensils and equipment) All utensils 
and equipment used in the mixing, preparation 
or bottling of bottled water and beverages shall 
be thoroughly cleaned with a suitable detergent 
and hot water and shall receive an approved 
bactericidal treatment at the end of each day's 
operation.

Alderman Bohling moved to concur in the com- 
mittee's recommendation and pass the proposed 
ordinance. 

Alderman Brody moved to amend the proposed 
ordinance as follows : 

By striking out all of the paragraph designated 
"95-29.5", and inserting in lieu thereof the follow- 
ing: 

"95-29.5. Location) No license to any per- 
son for any premises not heretofore licensed 
shall be issued for the conduct of any such 
establishment within two hundred (200) feet 
distant from any place or structure used as 
a church, school, library, hospital, public park, 
public playground or other public institution; 
from any building in which food is manufac- 
tured; or from any building used for residence 
purposes." 

The motion to amend prevailed. 

During debate, on motion of Alderman Bohling, the 
privilege of the floor was granted to Mr. John J. 
Mortimer, Acting Corporation Counsel, who gave his 
opinion as to the validity of the ordinance as 
amended.

Bauler, Burmeister, Merryman, Young, Freeman,

which are deposited upon the sidewalks of the 
City, and, when emptied, remain thereon for con- 
siderable periods of time ; and

poultry and other fowl, in and about retail food 
establishments, requires that such poultry and

Whereas, This creates a nuisance and attracts 
rats and other vermin, causing health and other 
hazards ;

such inspection report shall be posted by the 
board of health upon the inside wall of the poul- 
try-slaughtering establishment and shall not be

moved from the licensed premises and delivered 
to the board of health.

this code or any law of the state relating to the 
licensed business. 

95-29.8. Records.) Every licensee who pur- 
chases any live poultry or live fowl for resale or 
to be slaughtered for sale at retail, shall keep a 
record which will show the date of purchase, the 
number, weight, breed, description, and other 
distinguishing marks, if any, of said live poultry 
or live fowl and the name, address and brief des- 
cription of the seller or sellers, type of convey- 
ance used by said seller or sellers; and if said 
conveyance is a motor vehicle, a record of the

vacation period, except those in skilled-labor and 
labor-service classes who are employed on a per 
diem basis, shall be given a vacation with pay 
during the year 1951 of two (2) weeks, and those 
employes compensated on a monthly or annual 
basis who have served the City fifteen years or 
more shall be granted a vacation of three weeks 
with pay. If the respective department heads 
think it advisable, vacations may be divided into 
two periods. 

All employes in the skilled-labor and labor- 
service classes who are employed on a per diem 
basis shall be given a vacation with pay during 
the year 1951 subject to the following conditions : 
1. Those employes who have worked for 
one year since the date as of which the latest 
previous vacation allowance was computed, or 



since entrance in the City's service, shall be 
given a vacation of not to exceed two calendar 
weeks and not in excess of eleven (11) work 
days during said two calendar weeks, and 
those who have served the City fifteen (15) 
years or more shall be granted a vacation of 
not to exceed three calendar weeks and not in 
excess of sixteen and one-half (161/2) work 
days during said three weeks, in each case, at 
the rate of pay and under the conditions of 
employment covering those employes at the 
time the vacation is taken. 

2. Those employes who have worked for 
less than one year since the date as of which 
the latest previous vacation allowance was 
computed shall be granted a vacation propor- 
tionate to the amount of service actually ren- 
dered. 

3. Those employes who have been on duty 
disability whose time on such disability plus 
regular working time equals one year of serv- 
ice since the date as of which the latest 
previous vacation allowance was computed 
shall be granted two weeks' vacation as pro- 
vided in Section 1. In case the combined time 
equals less than one year, the period of duty 
disability shall be considered as regular serv- 
ice for the purpose of calculating a propor- 
tionate vacation. 

4. Working time shall include all days on 
which employment was had for the whole or 
for a part of the regular work day, but shall 
not include Sundays, holidays or the whole or 
a portion of a day allowed in excess of the 
regular work day as overtime. 

5. The department head shall designate 
when the vacation shall be taken and may 
divide such vacation into two periods if he 
thinks it advisable. 

6. Vacation time shall be charged to each

department, bureau, or division by employes;

Ordered, All employes, except those in the 
skilled-labor and labor-service classes who are em- 
ployed on a per diem basis, may be given leave of 
absence with pay for periods not exceeding fifteen 
(15) days in the aggregate during the year on 
account of sickness or other cause for absence 
which may be considered by the department head 
a sufficient and legitimate excuse for the employe's 
failure to be present and in attendance upon his 
duties, provided that the reason for the absence 
and the good faith of the employe in making the 
application for such leave shall be shown to the 
department head by such reasonable evidence as he 
may require, either by a physician's certificate, per- 
sonal affidavit or other means; and provided, fur- 
ther, that whenever a leave of absence on account 
of sickness for over three (3) days is applied for, 
such application must be made to the head of the 
department in writing within said three (3) days, 
accompanied by a certificate from a physician stat- 
ing the nature and severity of such sickness. 

Vacation and sick-leave periods may be com- 
bined, but only in the event the long-continued 
sickness of the employe warrants such course; 
should such long-continued sickness extend beyond 
twenty-nine (29) or thirty-six (36) days as pro- 
vided in the second paragraph of the vacation 
order, the extended sick leave shall be submitted 
to the Committee on Finance for approval; and be 
it further

of occurrences or transactions is alleged to exist, 
whether jointly, severally or in the alternative,

terclaim he shall pay to the clerk a docket fee of 
the same amount he would have been required to 
pay had he brought a separate action on such 
counterclaim.

going classes of actions, there is filed a demand 
in writing by either of the parties of a trial by

jurors unless, at the time of entering his ap- 
pearance he files a demand in writing of a trial 
by jury and shall not embody therein his consent 
to a trial by a jury of six jurors and shall pay 
to the clerk the sum of $6, in which case both 



parties shall be entitled to a trial by a jury of 
twelve jurors.

named as defendants in an action, an intervener 
or party instituting a garnishment or supplemental 
action shall be deemed a plaintiff and a garnishee 
or a third party, or a person sought to be made 
liable in a supplemental action, shall be deemed a

ment of claim, or the defendant in his counter- 
claim, sets forth separate and distinct causes of 
action triable by jury, but which cannot conveni- 
ently be tried together by one jury, each of said 
separate and distinct causes of action shall, for 
the purposes of this rule, be treated as if it were 
a separate and distinct action and the fees payable 
by the parties shall be estimated accordingly.

time of commencing his action filed a demand in 
writing of a trial by jury, and the defendant files a 
set-off or counterclaim, or an additional or amended 
set-off or counterclaim stating a new cause of 
action substantially different from that stated in 
the original set-off or counterclaim, the plaintiff 
shall have the right at any time within ten days 
after the filing of such set-off or counterclaim to

the payment of the fees required therefor, and the

filing by the plaintiff of an amendment to his state- 
ment of claim stating a new cause of action sub- 
stantially different from that stated in the original 
statement of claim. 

"Tenth. The party presenting for approval any 
attachment bond, replevin bond, forthcoming bond, 
appeal bond or other bond which may be required 
by law in any civil action shall pay as a fee to the 
officer to whom the same is presented for such 
approval, or, if the same is presented for approval

mined as follows :

shall be accounted for by them as a part of the 
fees of their respective offices.

of the record, or of any portion thereof, in any 
action shall pay the clerk the same fees required 
by law from time to time to be paid to the clerk 
of the Circuit Court of Cook County for similar 
service. 

"Twelfth. The party delivering to the bailiff or 
to the sheriff or coroner, as the case may be, any 
summons, writ of attachment, writ of replevin, sub- 



7274

action or proceeding other than a garnishment or 
supplemental action, shall, at the time of making 
such delivery, pay to the sheriff, bailiff or coroner, 
as the case may be, the sum of $2.00 if the case 
be one of the first or second class, or $1.50 if the 
case be one of the fourth class, for each person 
named in such process upon whom service thereof 
is made, and in cases of writs of attachment, re 
plevin or execution, he shall pay to the bailiff, 
sheriff or coroner, as the case may be, the further 
sum of $2.00 if the case be one of the first or sec- 
ond class, or $1.50 if the case be one of the fourth 
class, where any levy upon or seizure of property 
is to be made thereunder, and shall also pay to the 
bailiff, sheriff or coroner, as the case may be, the 
actual expense of seizing and caring for any prop- 
erty levied upon or seized thereunder. In a gar- 
nishment or supplemental action the party deliver- 
ing to the bailiff a summons to a garnishee, or a 
summons or rule to show cause to a person sum- 
moned in a supplemental action, shall at the time 
of the making of such delivery pay to such officer 
the sum of $1.50 for each person served. The costs 
for other services of the bailiff, sheriff or coroner, 
as the case may be, other than those hereinbefore 
or hereinafter expressly mentioned, in all classes 
of cases shall be the same as those required by law, 
from time to time, to be paid for similar services 
in cases in the Circuit Court of Cook County; 
Provided that no charge shall be made for mileage 
in the service of any writ in any case of the fourth 
class, and that no charge shall be allowed for the 
service or return of any alias or pluries writ when 
the costs above provided for the original writ have 
been paid. 

"Thirteenth. The bailiff, as commissions on 
money realized by execution, shall collect from 
the defendant in the execution five per cent upon 
the amount realized, if it does not exceed $100, 
but, if it exceeds $100 and does not exceed $500 
then five per cent on the first $100 and three per 
cent upon the remainder, and, if it exceeds $500 
five per cent on the first $100, three per cent on the 
next $400, and two per cent on the excess over 
$500; Provided that in all cases where the execu- 
tion shall be settled by the parties, replevied, 
stopped by injunction or paid, or where the prop- 
erty levied upon shall not be actually sold, the 
bailiff shall be allowed his fee for levying, together 
with half the commission he would be entitled to 
if the same was made by sale on execution. 

"Fourteenth. The costs for other services of the 
bailiff, sheriff or coroner, as the case may be, in 
all classes of cases, shall be the same as those re- 
quired by law, from time to time, to be paid for 
similar services in cases in the Circuit Court of 
Cook County excepting as may be otherwise pro 
vided by the rule of the Municipal Court. 

"Fifteenth. Whenever, in any action brought in 
the Municipal Court any party shall have executed 
or caused to be executed a bond, or bonds, with a 
surety or sureties, approved by the court or an 
officer thereof, which bond or bonds have been 



authorized or required by law or by rule or order 
of court to be executed and filed in such action, or 
where any party shall have executed or caused to 
be executed a bond or bonds, with a surety or sure- 
ties, to indemnify the clerk or the bailiff of said 
court or any sheriff on account of the execution of 
any writ delivered to him in such action, and shall 
have paid to such surety, or sureties, a premium, 
or premiums, for signing such bond or bonds, such 
party shall be entitled to have taxed as costs in the 
action in his favor the amount of such premium, 
or premiums, so paid, which premium or premiums 
shall not exceed the premium or premiums usually 
and customarily charged by standard surety com- 
panies for the signing of such bond or bonds, as 
sureties unless the court, for good cause shown, 
shall otherwise order. 

"In any case included within the terms of this 
section the court may, in its discretion, order that 
any advance payment of costs may be waived in 
favor of any poor person, whose financial circum- 
stances, as made to appear to the court, are such 
that an advance payment of costs would be unduly 
burdensome or oppressive, and no advance payment 
of costs shall in any case be required to be made 
either by the State of Illinois, the County of Cook, 
or any Municipal corporation or any board of pub- 
lic park commissions situated or having jurisdic- 
tion in whole or in part within the limits of the 
City of Chicago, or by any state, county, city or 
other municipal officer when suing or defending in 
his official capacity. The city council of the City of 
Chicago may from time to time, by a two-thirds 
vote of Its members, upon the recommendation of 
two-thirds of the judges of the Municipal Court 
by ordinance or ordinances, make such changes in 
or addition to the provisions of this section with 
respect to costs as may be deemed expedient." 

Section 2. This ordinance shall be effective 
upon Its passage and approval.

Progress Reports on Construction of Dearborn St. 
Subway — Placed on File. 

The Committee on Finance submitted reports rec- 
ommending that the City Council Place on File 
reports of the Commissioner of Subways and Super- 
highways advising as to progress on construction of 
the Dearborn Street Subway. 

On motion of Alderman Wagner the committee's 
recommendations were concurred in. 

Said reports, signed by V. E. Gunlock, Commis- 
sioner of Subways and Superhighways, dated August 
31, September 19 and 20, 1950, read respectively as 
follows : 

"In order that your Committee and the City 
Council may be advised as to the progress being 
made on the construction of the Dearborn Street 
Subway, I wish to report as follows: 

The award of Contract T-12 of the Dearborn 
Street Subway to Kil-Bar Electric Company, Inc., 
for installing Traction Power Distribution and 
Control Equipment was authorized by the City 
Council July 22, 1949, (See C.J. p. 4598). The 
specifications provide that the contract shall be 
completed by September 25, 1950. It is now ap- 
parent that this contract will not be completed 
within the specified time. 

The contract provides that under certain con- 



ditions the Commissioner of Subways and Super- 
highways may grant to the contractor an exten- 
sion of time occasioned by delays which are entire- 
ly beyond the contractor's control. 

The contract also provides that if the contractor 
does not meet the requirements as to time, prog- 
ress and final completion of the work within the 
specified date, then the city may declare the con- 
tract forfeited. However, inasmuch as it appears 
that the subway completion will not be delayed 
by permitting the contractor to finish this work, 
it is our opinion that the interests of the City will 
be best served by allowing the contractor, upon 
the consent of its surety to continue and complete 
the contract, even though there be a technical de- 
fault as to the time of completion." 

"In order that your Committee and the City 
Council may be advised as to the progress being 
made on the construction of the Dearborn Street 
Subway, I wish to report as follows: 

The award of Contract T-11 of the Dearborn 
Street Subway to Knott & Mielly, Inc., for Install- 
ing Signal and Interlocking Equipment, was au- 
thorized by the City Council January 20, 1950, 
(C.J. p. 5619). The specifications provide that the 
contract shall be completed by October 17, 1950. 
It is now apparent that this contract will not be 
completed within the specified time.

Introduction, 

In the 1947 session of the Illinois General As- 
sembly, a proposal was introduced which sought 
the abolition of the Chicago Park District and the 
absorption of its powers, duties and functions into 
the city of Chicago. Although this measure failed 
to get beyond committee consideration, it incited 
widespread corament and interest, as a result of 
which a standing committee of the Chicago City 
Council, designated as the Committee on Consolida- 
tion, Reorganization and Taxation, undertook a 
research study of the subject with the view of as- 
certaining the advisability of effecting such con- 
solidation. 

Public interest in the study of the council com- 
mittee gradually intensified, and, in December, 1948, 
Mayor Kennelly, cognizant of the far reaching 
implications involved in a merger of the two gov- 
ernments, created a special committee, represen- 
tative of the interests of the city, the park district, 
and the general public, to analyze the subject 
thoroughly and to report its conclusions and rec- 
ommendations to him. 

As an aid to the deliberations of the Committee, 
a comprehensive Agenda of subjects and inquiries 



pertinent to the consideration of the subject was 
prepared. A copy thereof is attached hereto as 
Exhibit A of the Appendix. Every item tnereon 
was thoroughly discussed during the four execu- 
tive meetings, at which members of the press were 
present. In addition thereto, a public hearing was 
conducted by the Committee on February 18, 1949, 
in the city council chambers at which testimony 
and views of interested persons and agencies were 
submitted. A summary of said public hearing con- 
taining the names and identification of such wit- 
nesses and a brief analysis of their views is attached 
hereto as Exhibit B oi the Appendix. 

During the course of its study, the Committee 
received invaluable assistance through the partici- 
pation in its meetings of Harland C. Stockwell, 
Executive Secretary of The Civic Federation, and 
Henry E. Cutler of the law firm of Chapman and 
Cutler. The Committee expresses its appreciation 
to them, and to other persons and agencies who 
contributed to its thinking by the submission of 
statements and views pertinent to the study. 



Factual Background. 

1. Chicago Park District - Creation - Functions. 
The Chicago Park District was created as a 

municipal corporation in 1934, superseding twenty- 
two independent park districts theretofore in ex- 
istence. The governmental area is co-extensive 
with the city of Chicago. The corporate authori- 
ties of the Chicago Park District consists of five 
commissioners appointed by the Mayor of the city 
of Chicago with the approval of the city council 
for staggered five year terms. The commissioners 
serve without compensation. Each commissioner 
is required to post a bond in the sum of $50,000 
for the use and benefit of the park district to as- 
sure faithful compliance with his duties and re- 
sponsibilities. The commissioners are directed to 
appoint a general superintendent for a four year 
term without regard to his political affiliations and 
solely upon the basis of his administrative and 
technical qualifications to manage the affairs of 
the district. 

In addition to the operation, maintenance and 
control of public parks, playgrounds and recrea- 
tional facilities, the Chicago Park District is in- 
vested with jurisdiction and power over driveways 
and boulevards both within and without park areas 
proper and in connection with its general purposes 
employs its own policemen and boulevard and 
driveway maintenance personnel. 

2. Quasi-Public Institutions. 

The Chicago Park District also exercises some 
functions in connection with quasi-public institu- 
tions and facilities. These are the Chicago Natural 
History Museum, the Museum of Science and In- 
dustry, the John G. Shedd Aquarium, the Art 
Institute of Chicago, the Chicago Academy of 
Sciences and the Chicago Historical Society. It 
operates the Adler Planetarium and the Bucking- 
ham Fountain Memorial. The Chicago Park Dis- 
trict, under legislative authorization, levies an 
annual tax, the proceeds of which are distributed 
to qualified museums and institutions on a per- 
centage basis, pursuant to contractual agreements. 

3. Civil Service. 

The recruitment, employment, promotion, demo- 
tion and suspension or termination of employment 
of park district employees, with a few statutory 
exceptions, are governed by civil service standards 
adopted pursuant to enabling legislation. The 



7298 



JOURNAI^— CITY COUNCIL— CHICAGO 



December 13. 1950 



unique character of certain park functions has re- 
sulted in the establishment of some position 
classifications not comparable in any respect to 
positions in the classified civil service of the city of 
Chicago. With regard to pay standards, sub- 
stantial variances exist in many cases in comparable 
employments as between the park district and the 
city of Chicago. 

4. Bonding Power. 

Although the park district, as an independent 
municipal corporation, has a maximum 5% con- 
stitutional debt authorization, its power to incur in- 
debtedness has from its inception been limited by 
statute to 1-1/2% of the value of the taxable prop- 
erty in the district, exclusive of the indebtedness 
of the superseded park districts which was assumed 
by it. As of December 31, 1948, the maximum 
bonding power of the Chicago Park District under 
present assessed valuations, and as limited by the 
statutory 1-1/2% rate, was $120,680,770.00. The 
indebtedness of the district, exclusive of the as- 
sumed indebtedness of superseded districts which 
amounted to $38,113,334.00, was $15,951,066.00. The 
total indebtedness incurred by the Chicago Park 
District since its creation in 1934 was $20,000,- 
000.00. The present remaining bonded power of 
the district, assuming the maintenance of the pres- 
ent assessed valuation and the existing statutory 
limit is $104,729,704.00 of which $15,000,000.00 bas 
been approved by referendum but not issued. 

The city of Chicago operates under no statutory 
limitation of indebtedness. Under the 5% constitu- 
tional limit of indebtedness it is authorized at 
present to incur a maximum debt of approximately 
$402,269,236.00. Outstanding indebtedness of the 
city as of December 31, 1948, was $102,577,000.00, 
against which must be offset sinking fund reserves 
totalling $13,817,000.00, less approximately $2,500,- 
000.00 representing twelve months interest charges. 
Net indebtedness as of that date was therefore 
$91,260,000.00. In addition the city has authorized 
but unissued bonds in the amount of $107,139,- 
000.00. The maximum present potential indebted- 
ness of the city, based upon issued and authorized 
but unissued bonds, is therefore $198,399,000.00. 

5. Taxing Power. 

The Chicago Park District, for general corporate 
purposes, has power to levy a tax at a rate of .20%, 
or at a rate that will produce a pegs^ed sum of 
$11,500,000.00, whichever may be the greater. 
Under the present property assessment formula in 
effect in Cook County, the rate produces approxi- 
mately $16,000,000.00. The city of Chicago, on the 
other hand, has a fixed corporate peg of $41,000 - 
000.00 with no alternative rate. 

6. City Parks - Board of Education Playgrounds. 
The city of Chicago operates and maintains a 

system of small parks and playgrounds throughout 
the city which are independent of the Chicago Park 
District. A number of playgrounds are also main- 
tained by the Board of Education as an incident 
to the operation of schools. The three systems of 
parks and recreational facilities are operated by 
the three governmental units with little or no at- 
tempt at coordination of functions and planning, 

7. Police and Street Maintenance Personnel. 
The police forces of the city of Chicago and the 

Chicago Park District are separate and distinct 
units. In like manner, both municipal corporations 
employ their own street maintenance personnel and 
equipment. The cost of park boulevard and drive- 
way repairs and maintenance is met from the park 



levy for corporate purposes whereas the bulk of 
the city's cost in connection with its roads and 
streets is derived from motor fuel tax allocations 
from the State and from the city tax on motor 
vehicles. The park district does not share in either 
the city tax or the State allocations. 

8. Pension Funds. 

The Chicago Park District maintains two an- 
nuity and benefit funds, one for its general em- 
ployees and the other for the park police. The 
city of Chicago maintains nine pension and annuitv 
plans providing coverage for substantially all of 
its employees on an occupational basis. Generally 
it may be observed that the two funds maintained 
by the park district are, from an actuarial stand- 
point, among the outstanding funds in the State 
and superior to the Chicago plans. In addition, 
there are many important variances between the 
plans maintained by both governmental units in 
such substantive provisions, among others, as rates 
of retirement and collateral benefits, rates of em- 
ployee and governmental contributions, and quali- 
fying service conditions. 

9. Tort Liability. 

A unique situation prevails in respect to the tort 
liability aspects of the two municipal corporations. 
The Supreme Court of Illinois has determined that 
the Chicago Park District, in the conduct and con- 
trol of both its park and boulevards, is engaged in 
exclusively governmental functions, and that no 
liability rests upon it for injuries sustained by 
reason of the negligence of its agents or employees, 
or other improper performance of its duties. On 
the other hand, the city of Chicago in its operation 
and maintenance of streets and roads is deemed 
engaged in proprietary functions and is therefore 
liable for negligent acts resulting in injuries to 
persons or property. For the purpose of simple 
illustration, a pedestrian or motor vehicle operator 
who is injured on a defective sidewalk or city street 
has an enforceable cause of action against the city, 
whereas persons injured on park walks or boule- 
vards under the same circumstances are without 
remedy. Precise statistics are not available to de- 
termine the extent of the annual liability incurred 
by the city in this regard but reasonably accurate 
estimates place the amount at a substantial figure 
m excess of $1,000,000.00. It was also estimated 
that in the event of the consolidation of the two 
governments the additional tort liability to be as- 
sumed by the city would range from $250,000 00 
to $500,000.00 annually. 

II 

Arguments Pro and Con. 

1. Consolidation Per Se as Sound Objective. 

It has been advanced that the existence of multi- 
ple governmental units and independent public 
instrumentalities within the same territorial area 
of operation is undesirable in principle and that 
centralization of governmental control is essential 
to the greatest promotion of the public welfare; 
that the maintenance of such independent units 
creates an undesirable diffusion of public control 
in many areas in which common public concern 
dictates the necessity of unified administration; 
that such condition results in individual competitive 
efforts for legislative consideration in matters of 
municipal and governmental finance without regard 
to the needs of the other governmental units and 
agencies, to the detriment of the overall needs of 
the public. 

The recent consolidation of the municipal govern- 



I 



December 13, 1950 



REPORTS OF COMMITTEES 



7299 



ments of New York City and the school district 
consolidation program in Illinois were cited as il- 
lustrations of a developing trend toward the elimi- 
nation of duplicating governmental units. The 
consolidation of the Chicago Park District and 
the city of Chicago was urged as the first step in 
a program which would ultimately lead to further 
consolidations of independent governmental units. 
Conversely it was argued that the theory of 
separate corporate identity for park operation, 
management and maintenance was essential to the 
proper development of park services and facilities 
which in the main seek to serve the recreational, 
social and cultural needs of all the people of the 
community; that the history of park operation 
has consistently, from the tune of its origin and 
throughout the years, been predicated upon a legis- 
lative policy which foresaw the need of isolating 
this phase of governmental functions from the con- 
trol and supervision of the government of the mu- 
nicipality in which the parks were located; that 
park services and functions are specialized to a 
degree which requires the utilization of highly 
trained and special skills under a management inde- 
pendent of city government ; that in terms of public 
necessity and welfare, the special functions of park 
district operation are relatively as important, if 
not more important, than the educational functions 
of a municipality and that consequently the same 
factors which dictated the necessity of a Board of 
Education free of city control are equally as valid 
in justification of independent status of the park 
district. It was pointed out that in several cities a 
consolidation of an independent park board with 
the city government has proven unsatisfactory and 
that in some instances where such a consolidation 
occurred an independent park board was subse- 
quently re-established. 

2. Elimination of Overlapping Governmental Func- 
tions and Resulting Economies. 

As has been noted above, the city of Chicago 
operates and maintains its own system of small 
parks and playgrounds which are not a part of 
the park system of the Chicago Park District. The 
Chicago Park District employs its own police force 
which in addition to engaging in park functions 
proper also performs traffic duties on the boule- 
vards and driveways under park district jurisdic- 
tion. Each governmental unit employs its owr 
street maintenance personnel and equipment for 
the performance of such services in its respective 
areas of control. In these three phases of govern- 
mental service, it is evident that there is a certain 
amount of duplication of governmental functions. 

There is some misconception in the public mind 
concerning the extent of police jurisdiction of the 
respective city and park district police forces. The 
popular notion that each force is limited to the per- 
formance of poUce functions to the precise areas 
of jurisdiction of its respective governmental unit 
is untrue. By express provision of law the park 
police are authorized to engage in police functions 
throughout the entire city's area, including such 
portions thereof as are under city jurisdiction. 
Although no comparable law expressly permits the 
exercise of city police authority in park district 
jurisdictions it must be noted that there is no law 
prohibiting such exercise of authority. A reason- 
able construction of statutory and judicial authority 
indicates the existence of such power. In any event 
the law pertaining to "fresh pursuit" clearly en- 
ables city police to perform their functions in park 
district areas under circumstances in which the 
principle of the law is involved. 



Moreover, for many years there has existed an 
administrative reciprocal agreement between the 
heads of the police departments of the city and park 
district pursuant to which the membership of each 
force is available to meet the special requirements 
of the other as the need therefor may arise. Under 
this arrangement there have been numerous co- 
operative interchanges of the police personnel. 

On the basis of information submitted, it does 
not appear that a consolidation would effect any 
reduction in the combined police personnel of the 
two governments. And although it may be con- 
ceded that there is no particular merit to a division 
of governmental authority in respect to streets and 
park boulevards or to the maintenance of separate 
street and boulevard personnel and equipment, there 
has been produced no authoritative evidence or 
statistics which mdicates that any economies would 
be effected by a complete consolidation of the city 
and the park district. 

In any consideration of the advisability of effect- 
ing a consolidation of two major municipal corpo- 
rations, a pertinent factor should be the extent to 
which such action would result in economies passed 
along to the taxpayers. During the several years 
that the subject of consolidation has been under 
discussion, loose estimates of potential savings have 
ranged from several hundred thousand dollars to 
three to four millions of dollars. None of these 
estimates has been supported by authoritative 
analysis. The Civic Federation of Chicago stated 
at meetmgs of the Committee that substantial sav- 
ings in terms of millions of dollars could not be 
expected from consolidation, and that according 
to calculations which The Civic Federation had 
made, not more than two hundred fifty to three 
hundred thousand dollars would be saved the tax- 
payers. Representatives of the park district have 
challenged even this minimum estimate of savings 
and the issue remains uncertain because of the com- 
plete absence of statistical data. Even upon the 
assumption (which is not conceded) that certain 
savings would be effected by a complete consolida- 
tion, the Committee believes that the extent there- 
of, in terms of dollars, would be relatively in- 
significant, and that in and of itself, this factor 
is not a persuasive one in the consideration of the 
problem. 
3. Bonding Power. 

As noted previously the constitutional 5% au- 
thorization of indebtedness provides a bonding 
power presently available under current assessment 
formulas to the city of Chicago in the amount 
of $402,269,236.00. The statutory limits of 1-1/2 V 
applicable to the park district permits the incur- 
rence of an indebtedness of $120,680,770.00. Each 
governmental unit is well under its permissible 
limitation. In the event ultimate park district 
needs require the removal or increase of the statu- 
tory limit, the authorized indebtedness of the park 
district could be increased to the equivalent of the 
maximum authorized indebtedness of the city, 
namely, $402,269,236.00. A consolidation of the 
two governmental units would completely eliminate 
this potential maximum 5% debt authorization of 
the park district. Such a consolidation would re- 
quire the city to assume (within its 5% limit) the 
outstanding indebtedness of the park district, in- 
cluding the remaining indebtedness of the 22 sup- 
erseded park districts. In addition, judicial con- 
struction of the constitutional provisions may 
require the assumption of the city's proportionate 
share of the indebtedness of the county and the 
sanitary district. Although the assumption of the 
outstanding park district indebtedness even though 



7300 



JOURNAL— CITY COUNCIL— CHICAGO 



December 13, 1950 



superimposed upon the city's present indebtedness 
would leave what would appear to be ample margin 
within the 5% limit, several factors indicate the 
need for caution in accepting without reservation 
the conclusion that such margin is or will be suf- 
ficient for future needs. In the first mstance it 
must be recognized that the present valuation of 
property in Chicago is admittedly close to the 
actual fair cash or market valuations of such 
property and that such valuations reflect current 
inflationary trends. The possibility of a defla- 
tionary market in all forms of property, real and 
personal, tangible and intangible, cannot be ig- 
nored. Any marked deflationary trend in future 
years would be reflected in lower assessed valua- 
tions for taxation purposes and would result in an 
automatic reduction in permissible bonding power. 
Should this occur, that which presently appears to 
be a safe economic margin for the incurrence of 
additional indebtedness may in fact be completely 
wiped out or substantially impaired to the ultunate 
detriment of essential future needs in the public 
interest. 

A second factor which must be considered in re- 
lation to this problem is the current program of 
the park district for the establishment of small 
parks throughout the city to meet the recreational 
needs of the people on a more equitable and 
thorough basis than is now available. The original 
estimate of the cost of this entire program was 
$60,000,000.00. To carry out the first phase of 
this program, referendum approval has been 
granted the park district to issue bonds in the 
amount of $24,000,000.00. The original estunate, 
based upon pre-war standards, is now wholly inade- 
quate to carry out the full program. Present esti- 
mates, based upon increased costs of land, labor 
and materials, indicate that $104,000,000.00 in- 
stead of $60,000,000.00 will be necessary to finance 
the full program. If the program for the estab- 
lishment and extension of city-wide small parks 
has the support of the people of Chicago, as is 
apparently the case, the execution of this pro- 
gram will require the incurrence of an additional 
mdebtedness of $95,000,000.00, since only $9,000,- 
000.00 of the authorized park district bond issue 
of $24,000,000.00 has been sold. This total pros- 
pective mdebtedness would substantially reduce 
the margin available to the city under a consolida- 
tion even if present valuations are maintained. 

The elimination of a tremendous potential lia- 
bility which would be the result of a consolidation 
provides an attractive argument for the abolition 
of the Chicago Park District. Closer analysis re- 
veals however, that risks engendered by such ac- 
tion involve implications of a serious character in 
terms of meeting prospective needs for both gen- 
eral corporate and park needs. Moreover, as long 
as enabling legislation remains a necessary condi- 
tion precedent to the removal or increase of the 
present 1-1/2% limit of park district indebtedness 
and the electorate retains the power to authorize 
or reject proposals for new bond issues, these 
salutary controls mitigate against the reasonable- 
ness of fears expressed over the huge potential of 
indebtedness. 

4. Efficiency of Park Service and Administration. 
The administration of park district services and 
functions by the Chicago Park District is uni- 
versally conceded to be of exceptional excellence 
From the time of the creation of the district the 
commissioners thereof, notwithstanding some 
turnover in membership, have established and en- 
forced standards of administration in all phases 



of park district service which have merited the 
acclaim of the public, civic agencies devoted to the 
promotion of better government, cultural and rec- 
reational associations and religious organizations 
ot all taiths. Its contribution in terms of social 
recreational and cultural values made available to 
the people of the city, particularly in respect to 
molding the physical and moral character of the 
youthful population of the city along proper lines 
ot development is inestimable. The park district 
enjoys an enviable national, if indeed not inter- 
national, reputation of municipal government at 
its best, and the standards and programs it has 
developed and instituted have been adopted as 
desirable patterns of approach in many communi- 
ties throughout the nation and in some cases in 
ii.urope. Its administration has been almost wholly 
unfettered by political considerations common in 
ordinary forms of municipal government. The in- 
dependence from political controls which it has 
enjoyed has to a large extent been responsible for 
the unusual record of achievement with which it 
is credited. 

The extent to which a consolidation of the gov- 
ernments of the city of Chicago and the Chicago 
Park District might impair the excellent services 
and administration now provided by the park dis- 
trict has been a matter of primary concern to the 
Committee. It is, of course, recognized that even 
high standards of efficiency may conceivably de- 
teriorate as the personnel of the governing body 
changes or as other factors and influences com- 
mon to municipal government may develop. It 
cannot, therefore, be categorically contended that 
the present high level of park administration will 
be inflexibly maintained indefinitely into the fu- 
ture. On the other hand, the Committee is of the 
firm opinion that the existence of an independent 
municipal government devoted exclusively to the 
performance of specialized park functions in ac- 
cordance with the pattern upon which the Chicago 
Park District is established has been the factor 
chiefly responsible for the highly commendable 
record that has been achieved, and that the proba- 
bility of the maintenance of such record in the 
future is more within the realm of reasonable ex- 
pectancy if the status of such district remains 
unchanged than would be the case if the district 
were to be abolished and its functions undertaken 
by the city. 

The Committee is motivated in this conclusion by 
its belief that a consolidation would have the ef- 
fect of reposing control of the administration in 
the fifty-member city council. This would neces- 
sarily follow notwithstanding that the consolida"- 
tion legislation might provide for the creation of a 
department of city government to administer the 
park functions so assumed. Such a park depart- 
ment, as in the case of all other executive city de- 
partments, would be subject to certain adminis- 
trative controls of the city council and in practice 
its administrative policies would be determined by 
the city council. The city council is the corporate 
authority of the city. It alone has the power to 
determine revenue needs, to levy taxes and to ap- 
propriate moneys for municipal services. It is 
axiomatic that the power to control revenues is 
the equivalent of the power to control the execu- 
tion of administrative policies. It is unfortunately 
true that the legislative structure of city govern- 
ment lends itself inherently to certain undesirable 
consequences. City aldermen honestly feel them- 
selves compelled to strive for the most effective 
representation of their particular constituents. In 



December 13, 1950 



REPORTS OF COMMITTEES 



7301 



some cases this results in the subordination of 
over-all city interests to geographic favoritism 
based upon ward boundaries. 

In the area of public park administration the in- 
centive for sectional pressures may be particularly 
acute. Parks and playgrounds have a tremendous 
appeal to all people. They fulfill basic needs. They 
are assets both visible and tangible and the public 
necessity underlying programs of extension of 
parks and recreational facilities requires no high 
pressure selling campaign. For these reasons it is 
imperative that the administration of park func- 
tions be vested in an agency so constituted that it 
can plan with intelligence, integrity and independ- 
ence, the furnishing of services on a basis con- 
sistent with city-wide needs. This has been the 
record of the Chicago Park District. It is evident 
not only in its present facilities but also in respect 
to its contemplated small park development pro- 
gram to which reference has heretofore been made. 
That program will result in the establishment of 
two or more small parks in some wards, one in 
others and none in several. The allocation is predi- 
cated upon existing current needs as related to 
such factors as population requirements, adequacy 
of present parks and facilities, economic status of 
the residents and other pertinent statistical data 
germane to sound planning. It is a plausible 
assumption that this program would, if placed 
under the control of the city council, be materially 
tailored to meet the sectional demands of aldermen 
seeking a beneficiary status for their constituents, 
in many cases without regard to basic city-wide 
needs. Such a condition would be productive of 
great harm and would inevitably lead to a deterio- 
ration in the present high standards of administra- 
tion of the parks. 

Intimately connected with this question of effec- 
tive service and administration in the event of 
consolidation is the problem of adequate revenues 
for the execution of park policies and functions. 
Even upon the assumption that the city's tax rate 
for corporate purposes would be increased by the 
equivalent of present annual park district needs, 
there would be no assurance that the total amount 
thus made available for the parks would be ear- 
marked and expended for such purpose. Past 
experience indicates that there is no hesitancy 
upon the part of the city council to divert funds 
originally intended for particular purposes to needs 
which are deemed currently more urgent. Actually 
this flexibility in respect to the allocation of muni- 
cipal corporate revenues, as a general proposition, 
may be a desirable discretionary power to be vested 
in the city council. In the case of parks and recrea- 
tional facilities, however, the wisdom of this policy 
becomes extremely questionable. The present park 
system represents a tremendous capital investment 
not only in plant facilities but in the promotion of 
essential human values. In its present status it 
represents a magnificent community asset, but if 
through the pressure of other corporate needs the 
revenues necessary to maintain the parks and its 
services in accordance with its present standards 
are reduced, the resulting lessening or deteriora- 
tion of these standards and services may well 
transform this asset into a liability. The expendi- 
ture of insufficient corporate funds in the promo- 
tion of a public purpose which can be effectively 
achieved only by the utilization of more funds than 
are made available is a wasteful expenditure. 

It has been suggested that a separate tax rate 
could be provided in a consolidation statute with 
safeguards adequate to prevent a diversion of 



funds. The Committee perceives no practical 
method by which this could be accomplished ex- 
cept upon a plan which would give to the depart- 
ment in charge of parks the same degree of inde- 
pendence in respect to its fiscal matters as is now 
exercised by the Board of Education. Such a plan, 
however, would effectively nullify any asserted 
advantages to be derived from consolidation and 
for that reason it cannot be urged as an argument 
for consolidation. 

m 

Constitutional and Legal Problems 
OF Consolidation. 

1. Constitutional Provisions. 

It is fundamental that any proposed consolida- 
tion of the governments of the city of Chicago and 
the Chicago Park District requires compliance with 
and subjection to the conditions and limitations 
contained in Article 4, Section 34 of the Illinois 
Constitution. The provisions of this section auth- 
orize the General Assembly to enact legislation 
(local, special or general) providing a scheme or 
charter of local municipal government for the ter- 
ritory now or hereafter embraced within the city 
of Chicago. The pertinent provisions are the fol- 
lowing : 

"The law or laws so passed may provide for 
consolidating (in whole or in part) in the munic- 
ipal government of the city of Chicago, the 
powers now vested in the city, Board of Educa- 
tion, township, park and other local govern- 
ments and authorities having jurisdiction con- 
fined to or within said territory or any part 
thereof, and for the assumption by the city of 
Chicago of the debts and liabilities (in whole 
or in part) of the governments or corporate 
authorities whose functions within its territory 
shall be vested in said city of Chicago, and may 
authorize said city, in the event of its becoming 
liable for the indebtedness of two or more of the 
existing municipal corporations lying wholly 
within said city of Chicago, to become indebted 
to an amount (including its existing indebted- 
ness and the indebtedness of all municipal corpo- 
rations lying wholly within the limits of said 
city, and said city's proportionate share of the 
indebtedness of said county and sanitary district 
which share shall be determined in such manner 
as the General Assembly shall prescribe) in the 
aggregate not exceeding five percentum of the 
full value of the taxable property within its 
limits, as ascertained by the last assessment 
either for State or municipal purposes previous 
to the incurring of such indebtedness, (but no 
new bonded indebtedness, other than for refund- 
ing purposes, shall be incurred until the propo- 
sition therefor shall be consented to by a 
majority of the legal voters of said city voting 
on the question at any election, general, munici- 
pal or special) ;...." 

2. Necessity for Referendum. 

The section further provides that no law based 
thereon, affecting the municipal government of the 
city of Chicago, shall take effect except upon 
referendum approval of the legal voters of the city. 

Article 4, Section 34 presents several difficult 
questions which have an important bearing upon 
the basic issue concerning the advisability ot 
effecting a consolidation. As a preliminary obser- 
vation, it is the opinion of the Committee that the 
law providing for consolidation must be submitted 



7302 



JOURNAL— CITY COUNCIL— CHICAGO 



December 13, 1950 



to a referendum. This opinion is concurred in by' 
sound legal judgment. The failure of Senate Bill 
No. 4 of the 65th General Assembly to carry a 
referendum requirement on the question of the 
consolidation of the two governments was a major 
defect. 

Reference has already been made to the provi- 
sion requiring the city to assume not only the 
indebtedness of the consolidated municipal corpora- 
tions, but also the city's proportionate share of 
the indebtedness of the county and the sanitary 
district if the section is so construed, and the pos- 
sible restrictive effects thereof in terms of the 
maximum 5% limit of indebtedness. Of equal 
importance in connection with this matter is the 
parenthetical statement prohibiting the city's 
incurrence of new bonded indebtedness, except 
refunding bonds, after a consolidation has been 
effected. The applicability of this prohibition to a 
proposed consolidation of the city of Chicago and 
the Chicago Park District involves technical and 
difficult principles of construction of constitutional 
language. The obstruseness of the language and 
the grammatical pattern of the section makes it 
extremely difficult to determine whether the paren- 
thetical expression should be construed as qualify- 
ing only that preceding language in the section 
referring to the city assumption of indebtedness 
of two or more municipal corporations lying within 
the limits of the city, which would not be the case 
if the city assumed only the indebtedness of the 
Chicago Park District or whether it applies to a 
consolidation only of the two municipal corpora- 
tions. The issue can be clarified only by judicial 
test, and upon the assumption that the restriction 
under discussion would be held applicable to the 
consolidation of the two units such a result might 
entail serious implications in respect to the city's 
fiscal powers. Although the Committee believes 
that referendum approval of bond issues by the 
electorate as a general proposition is a statutory 
and beneficial safeguard against arbitrary abuse 
of power, It IS of the opinion that a limited measure 
of flexibility should be permitted the city in respect 
to the incurrence of certain types of indebtedness 
and that an all-inclusive prohibition may under 
some conditions have a crippling effect upon the 
city's fiscal powers. The contingency that a con- 
solidation may result in undesirable limitations in 
areas of municipal finance in which proper discre- 
tion to incur indebtedness without referendum 
approval should be permitted appears to the Com- 
mittee to present a serious argument against the 
desirability of consolidation. 

The provisions of Section 4, Article 4, present 
another risk of a serious and indeterminate char- 
acter As noted above, it is provided that no law 
based upon said section of the Constitution affect- 
ing the municipal government of the city of Chi- 
cago shall take effect except upon referendum 
approval of a majority of the legal voters of the 
city voting upon the question. This provision has 
been construed by the Illinois Supreme Court in 
connection with the legislation establishing the 
Municipal Court of Chicago, to require referendum 
approval not only of the initial basic law creating 
said court but also of subsequent legislative amend- 
ments thereto. The same principle is applicable 
to any legislation which consolidates the city and 
the park district but to a potentially more serious 
degree. It is impossible to predict the extent to 
which any legislation affecting the municipal gov- 
ernment of the city of Chicago must receive the 
consent of the electorate once a consolidation has 



been effected. Will the principle enumerated by 
the Supreme Court in the Municipal Court cases be 
held applicable to future legislation affecting only 
park functions of the city or on a much broader 
scale? And even if held applicable only to legisla- 
tion dealing with park functions where is the line 
to be drawn between such functions and other city 
functions? For example, if enabling legislation 
permits the city to increase its tax for corporate 
purposes, must such act require referendum ap- 
proval because park functions are included in the 
general rate or peg for corporate purposes ? 

These are a few of the serious questions which 
suggest themselves in connection with this prob- 
lern. These issues will most certainly be litigated 
and It is essential that this be so in order to estab- 
lish coherence and stability in the exercise of 
municipal powers. The risk is that the judicial 
determinations will establish standards of munic- 
ipal powers so restrictive in scope as to seriously 
impair the exercise of normal city powers and 
functions. The Committee is constrained to ques- 
tion the wisdom of subjecting the city to this risk. 

IV 

Functional Consolidation. 

1. General Considerations. 

During the course of the Committee's investiga- 
tion and deliberations there was fully explored as 
a possible alternative to complete governmental 
consolidation of the two municipal corporations 
a so-called functional plan of consolidation. This 
plan contemplates the transfer to the city of Chi- 
cago of park district jurisdiction of all boulevards 
and driveways used for vehicular purposes, both 
withm and without the public parks proper the 
additional transfer of all park district police to 
the city of Chicago, and a concurrent transfer to 
the Chicago Park District of all parks, playgrounds 
and recreational facilities presently under the 
jurisdiction of the city of Chicago and the Board 
of Education. 

The theory underlying this proposal is that the 
fundamental purpose of a park district is to pro- 
vide facilities to meet the recreational, cultural 
and social needs of the people; that the exercise 
of traffic control and street maintenance functions 
by a park district is essentially unrelated to this 
fundamental purpose and more logically within the 
functions of the city government; that in like man- 
ner there is no logic to the operation and mainten- 
ance of parallel functions in respect to recreation, 
social and cultural activities by both governmental 
units and that the primary objectives of the park 
district can be more effectively fulfilled by a unifi- 
cation of jurisdiction over such matters. 

2. Merits of Functional Consolidation. 

The Committee conceives that there is much 
merit to such a plan and the arguments in support 
thereof. Beyond the fact that functional consolida- 
tion will permit a coordination of function more 
consistent than that which now prevails in respect 
to certain powers now exercised by the city, the 
Board of Education and the park district, the plan 
has the further merit that it will accomplish most 
effectively the elimination of such duplicating and 
overlapping services and functions as now exist 
while at the same time preserving the proven ad- 
vantages of independent park district identity and 
status.

Recommendations. 

On the basis of the foregoing analysis, the Com- 
mittee recommends: 

1. That the Chicago Park District retain its 
autonomous corporate status and that it be 
neither abolished nor merged into the structure 
of government of the city of Chicago. 

2. That a functional consolidation be effected 
which will transfer to the city of Chicago control 
of park district boulevards and driveways used 
as thoroughfares for vehicular traffic, within 
and without the public parks, including the 
transfer of all park district police and street 
maintenance personnel and equipment to the 
city, and concurrently will transfer control of 
parks, playgrounds and recreational facilities, 
other than playgrounds and facilities adjacent 
to and constituting a part of the public school 
building premises, from the city of Chicago and 
the Board of Education to the Chicago Park 
District. In connection with such functional con- 
solidation it is recommended 

(a) that the park police and other park 
personnel transferred to the city be permitted 
to retain a continuing membership status in 
their appropriate annuity and benefit fund of 
the park district in order that their present 
credits, expectancies and equities be fully 
preserved ; 

(b) that the civil service status and 
rights of all personnel transferred as a result 
of such functional consolidation be preserved ; 
and 

(c) that the tax levy of each municipality 
be adjusted to the extent necessary to fully 
reflect the additional or reduced costs of each 
municipality resulting from such functional 
consolidation.

"Exhibit B" 

Mayor's Committee in Re Consolidation of 

City of Chicago and Chicago Park District. 

Public Hearing — City Council Chamber 

February 18, 1949. 

The public hearing was called to order by Alder- 
man Keane at 2:40 P.M. Chairman Keane intro- 
duced the members of the Mayor's Committee and 
explained the purpose of the meeting. He requested 
that all persons desiring to be heard who had pre- 
pared statements in regard to the subject should 
leave a copy thereof with the Committee. 

Th« following persons spoke in regard to the 
issue of Park-City consolidation and the substance 
of their statements and recommendations is 
indicated : 

1. Reverend Ralph A. Gallagher, Director, 
Institute of Social Administration, Loyola Univer- 
sity. Praised the present administration of the 
Chicago Park District, particularly in relation to 
its recreational programs. Opposed the principle 
of complete consolidation, particularly on the 
ground that he feared that control by the City 
Council of Chicago in lieu of the independent Park 
Board would result in a deterioration of Park 
services. Indicated that he favored a functional 
consolidation. 

2. Miss Harriet E. Vittum, Former Director, 
Northwestern University Settlement. Spoke at 
great length of the development and growth of 
park syscems in the City of Chicago and of the 
social and cultural activities promoted by the pres- 
ent administration. Opposed the idea of consolida- 
tion, and pleaded for the maintenance of the 
status quo. 

3. State Senator Peter Miller. Opposed con- 
solidation, stating that the prevention of juvenile 
delinquency should not be measured in terms of 
dollars saved by a consolidation. He spoke highly 
of the administration of the Chicago Park System 
and indicated fear that a consolidation would result 
in a deterioration of services. 

4. Mr. Derrel Gross, representing Dr. John 
Lapp, speaking for the City Club of Chicago. Mr. 
Gross explained that the Local Government Com- 
mittee of the City Club had made only a prelim- 
inary study of the matter at this point. He ex- 
plained the history of park consolidation in the 
city. He stated that the following points would 
have to ba given great consideration in the deter- 
mination of the issue as to the desirability of con- 
solidation, namely, (a) that a referendum on the 
subject could conceivably fail, thus resulting in 
the imposition of expensive election costs without 



results; (b) that a consolidation, if effected, would 
result m cutting the bonding power of the two 
governmental units in half and that this could 
conceivably result in undesirable consequences in 
relation to future expansion of Park services; (c) 
that expenses of transfer of title of Park property 
to the City of Chicago in the event of consolidation 
would be substantial, and (d) that a consolidation 
might result m the impairment of essential Park 
services and present efficiency. 

He emphasized the necessity for a real study of 
the merits and disadvantages of consolidation He 
recommended that the Mayor's Committee prepare 
and publish a comprehensive report before any 
legislative proposals in re consolidation are sub- 
mitted. 

5. Mr. L. H. Weir, District Representative, Na- 
tional Recreation Association. Mr. Weir spoke at 
length of the historical background of the creation 
of Park districts pointing out that since the incep- 
tion of Park services the legislative approach has 
been the creation of a separate and distinct muni- 
cipal corporation vested exclusively with the Park 
administration powers and duties. He lauded the 
Chicago Park District's record of achievements 
stating that it was one of the best in the land. He 
expressed apprehension at the possibility of any 
change which would destroy the independent mu- 
nicipal status of park districts. He pointed to 
similar experiments in other municipalities which 
had turned out disastrous, citing particularly the 
case of the City of Indianapolis. He also cited the 
case of the City of Detroit which, after providing 
for the abolition of the independent form of Park 
administration, had reverted to the original system 
as a result of the unfavorable record resulting from 
the initial change. 

In response to specific inquiries from members 
of the Committee, he stated that a functional con- 
solidation which would involve the transfer of the 
Chicago Park District police to the City of Chicago 
and the assumption of policing the parks by City 
police would probably not work out. He stated 
that general experience in this regard had proven 
that with one exception, the City of Louisville, 
every attempt to provide for the policing of parks 
by the regular City police had resulted in a miser- 
able failure, principally because the inclination 
seemed to be to use the parks as a sanitarium and 
rest home for aged police officers. He stated further 
that the policing of parks is entirely different from 
regular City police functions ; that special problems 
and special training are necessary, and that these 
problems and training are wholly different from 
those which pertain to regular City police 
functions. 

Mr. Weir also stated that the operation of Park 
boulevards and streets by the Park District no 
longer served a necessary purpose. He explained 
that originally boulevards served a recreational 
function particularly for users of non-machine 
means of transportation but that today the boule- 
vards and the streets are nothing but rapid transit 
highways. He indicated that a functional consoli- 
dation would be desirable but expressed opposition 
to the idea of complete consolidation. 

6. Mr. Harland C. Stockwell, Executive Secre- 
tary, The Civic Federation of Chicago. Mr. Stock- 
well spoke in favor of consolidation, stating that 
he did not share the fears of other speakers in 
regard to City Council control; that particularly 
was consolidation necessary in regard to the elimi- 
nation of the duplicate bonding power. He pointed 



I

REPORTS OF COMMITTEES 



7305 



out that rising costs of government had resulted in 
great tax burdens which were in a persistent up- 
ward trend and that a consolidation would have 
a salutary effect in maintaining the financial 
stability of the government and in preventing the 
imposition of excessive tax burdens in the future. 

Mr. Lozowick interrogated Mr. Stockwell in re- 
gard to the position of The Civic Federation in the 
matter of the independence of the Board of Edu- 
cation from City Council control. Mr. Stockwell 
replied that the Board of Education should retain 
its independent status. Mr. Lozowick inquired 
whether 'the recreational functions of the Park 
District were not equally on a par with educational 
functions in regard to the necessity of independent 
administration. Mr. Stockwell replied that he per- 
ceived no such parity of relationship. Further dis- 
cussion was had in regard to the legal aspects of 
consolidation. 

7. Mrs. John Fox, member of the Women's City 
Club, speaking individually only. Mrs. Fox opposed 
complete consolidation by indicating that she 
favored functional consolidation. 

8. Mr. Harry A. Edgren, recreational leader, 
spoke briefly in opposition to consolidation, point- 
ing up the favorable record of the Chicago Park 
District administration in regard to its recreational 
programs. 

9. Blanche Mueller, Illinois Association for 
the Crippled. Made a brief statement in opposition 
to consolidation, stating that her organization had 
received wonderful cooperation from the Chicago 
Park District. 

10. Mr. Marvin Bas, Attorney for the Park Em- 
ployees Benefit and Protective Association. Argued 
against consolidation, high lighting his point with 
a comparison of the services and maintenance of 
parks under the control of the Chicago Park Dis- 
trict and those operated by the City of Chicago. 
Presented photographs pointing up the superiority 
of the administration of the Chicago Park District. 
Also indicated that consolidation would be difficult 
to achieve because of inadequate Civil Service clas- 
sifications of the City of Chicago; that the City 
has no classifications for a large number of Park 
employees; that there are also wide variances in 
salary. Also pointed up the difficulties that would 
result in regard to the pension status of Park em- 
ployees under their independent pension act. He 
urged the transfer of City parks to the Chicago 
Park District. 

Numerous members of the City Council who 
were in attendance at the hearing took issue with 
Mr. Bas concerning the services of the City of 
Chicago in relation to the parks and playgrounds 
maintained by it, praising the ability of Mr. Walter 
Wright, superintendent in charge of City parks. 

11. Mr. V. K. Brown^ President, American Rec- 
reation Society. Spoke emphatically against con- 
solidation, indicating the specialized functions of 
recreation required an independent status. Feared 
that a merger would result in loss of revenues for 
Park administration and maintenance, and that the 
great system of parks and its recreational service, 
with improper revenues, could be transformed into 
a tremendous liability rather than an asset. 

12. Mr. B. D. Jackson^ Northwest Federation 
of Improvement Clubs. Spoke briefly in opposition 
to complete consolidation, and indicated that he 
favored a functional consolidation. 

13. Mr. Fred Henderson, Executive Secretary 
of Southtown Planning Association. Stated that 



the Association had no opinion at the moment and 
desired a chance for a further consideration of the 
subject. Stated that the views of the Association 
would be submitted to the Mayor's Committee prior 
to its meeting on March 3rd. 

14. Mrs. Allen Moulton, President, Yale Par- 
ent-Teacher Group, also member of the Southtown 
Planning Association. Spoke in opposition to com- 
plete consolidation. 

15. Mr. George Williamson, President, Illinois 
Association for the Crippled. Opposed complete 
consolidation. Speaking also as an individual busi- 
ness man, he stated that the estimate of savings, 
from a business standpoint, did not justify the 
contemplated merger. 

16. Mr. Eugene Trosky, student. Spoke briefly 
in favor of the maintenance of the present system 
and in opposition to consolidation. 

17. Mr. Arthur Lindell, Budget Director of 
the City of Chicago. Urged that in the event of a 
consolidation, separate tax rates be maintained for 
parks if it was intended to prevent a diversion of 
Park funds for general corporate purposes. 

18. Mr. George T. Donoghue, General Super- 
intendent of Chicago Park District and member of 
the Mayor's Committee. Spoke briefly in praise of 
Mr. Walter Wright for the purpose of dispelling 
any impression that may have been created by 
previous speakers in regard to the subject of City 
parks and playgrounds to the effect that Mr. 
Wright was not performing an efficient job. 

There being no other persons desiring to be 
heard, the meeting was adjourned at 5:05 P.M. 



Proposal for Study of Question of Combining in 
One Department Certain Building-Inspection 
Services — Action on Committee's Rec- 
ommendation Deferred. 

The Committee on Consolidation, Reorganization 
and Taxation submitted the following report, which 
was, on motion of Alderman Keane, Deferred and 

Ordered Published: 

Chicago, December 8, 1950. 

To the President and Members of the City Council: 
Your Committee on Consolidation, Reorganiza- 
tion and Taxation begs leave to submit herewith a 
report prepared by one of its subcommittees on the 
matter of the advisability of combining in one de- 
partment all inspections relative to buildmgs made 
by the City of Chicago, excepting such inspections 
as are made by the Department of Health. 

The Committee on ConsoUdation, Reorganization 
and Taxation has concurred in the recommendations 
made in said report and respectfully recommends 
concurrence in them by Your Honorable Body. 

This recommendation was concurred in by 12 
members of the committee, with no dissenting votes. 

Respectfully submitted, 

(Signed) Thomas E. Keane, 

Chairman. 

The following is the report of the subcommittee 
referred to in the foregoing committee report: 

Chicago^ December 7, 1950. 

Honorable Thomas E. Keane, Chairman, 
Committee on Consolidation, 
Reorganization and Taxation. 

Dear Alderman Keane — Reference is made to 
the matter referred to this subcommittee relating 



7306 



JOURNAIx— CITY COUNCIL— CHICAGO 



December 13, 1950 



to the advisability of combining in one department 
all inspections relative to buildings made by the 
City of Chicago excepting such inspections as are 
made by the Department of Health. 

Your subcommittee begs leave to report as fol- 
lows: 

A hearing was held by the subcommittee at 
which representatives of the Fire, Building and 
Health Departments appeared. In connection with 
its consideration of the matter before it the sub- 
committee considered the job summary and report 
prepared by the committee staff, which is annexed 
hereto and made a part hereof. 

In general the subcommittee considered the feasi- 
bility of consolidating city inspection services with 
a view toward economy and increasing the efficiency 
and regularity of inspections. While a full and de- 
tailed study of the matter was not made, the sub- 
committee finds that: 

1. It appears from the report and job summary 
and statements made by representatives of 
city departments, there is an apparent and 
substantial diversity in the duties and func- 
tions of inspectors in the various city de- 
partments. There is apparently a sufficient 
demarcation of duties, functions and qualifi- 
cations so as to make impracticable a con- 
solidation of inspection services. It appears 
that special training and experience are neces- 
sary with respect to the performance of tasks 
by various classifications of inspectors. 

2. A most serious situation exists with respect 
to the inadequacy of inspectors in the Fire 
and Building Departments. 

The representatives of the Fire Department 
frankly stated that with fifty inspectors at the 
present time the Department should have a least 
two hundred inspectors if they are to fully perform 
all their functions of regulation and inspection 
for fire hazards, and that approximately twenty- 
five percent of the task that should be performed 
is now being done. 

Representatives of the Building Department 
frankly stated that two hundred more inspectors 
are needed to effect regular inspection for non- 
compliance with the Building Code and other city 
ordinances. 

3. The Commissioner of Buildings is without 
adequate legal power to secure prompt and 
effective enforcement of violations of the 
Building Code and zoning ordinances. 

4. While there is some degree of cooperation and 
interchange of information between the vari- 
ous departments, there is apparently no co- 
ordinated plan to utilize information available 
to each city department with respect to 
violations of city ordinances. 

Your subcommittee respectfully recommends that : 
1. An independent engineering firm be engaged 
to make a comprehensive survey of the over- 
lapping functions of the inspection services 
of each city department and for the purpose 
of recommending what consolidation, if any, 
of such inspection services may be made so 
as to utilize the maximum manpower of each 
department. 

The heads of each department shall formulate 
a committee to prepare a manual or abstract 
of points or factors considered by inspectors 
m each department. A consolidating manual 
available to inspectors of all departments 
would contribute to utilizing information re- 



2. 



ceived by one department for use by another 
department. 

3. Immediate consideration be given by the Com- 
mittee on Finance to effecting some means 
of increasing the number of inspectors in 
the Building and Fire Departments. This will 
contribute substantially to reducing the fire 
hazards incident to the fires that occurred in 
recent months in old and dilapidated struc- 
tures. 

4. Consideration shall be given to creating a 
central complaint bureau where residents may 
file their complaints without calling or being 
referred to various city departments, such 
bureau to transmit the complaints for ap- 
propriate action by the affected department. 

Respectfully submitted, 
(Signed) Alderman Benjamin M. Becker, 

Chairman, 
(Signed) Alderman Louis London.

COMMITTEE ON TRAFFIC AND PUBLIC SAFETY. 



Chicago Park District Requested to Consider 

Establishment of Underground Parking 

Facilities on Portions of Marine Drive. 

The Committee on Traffic and Public Safety, to 
which had been referred (May 25, 1950) a proposed 
resolution concerning establishment of parking facili- 
ties along the east side of Marine Drive, submitted a 
report recommending that the City Council adopt the 
proposed substitute resolution (submitted therewith) 
reading as follows: 

Whereas, The district extending from Lawrence 
Avenue to Foster Avenue and from Broadway to 
Marine Drive is so intensively developed with mul- 
tistory apartment buildings and hotels that it is 
practically impossible for the people living there 
to find parking space, off-street or along the curbs, 
for their automobiles; and 

Whereas, This condition will be insufferable with 
the completion of the large apartment buildings 
now being erected there or for the erection of 
which plans are now in preparation; and 

Whereas, Similar parking problems exist in oth- 
er districts adjacent to the lake-shore area on both 
the north and south sides of the city; and 

Whereas, It is of the utmost importance that 
our local governments take steps as early as pos- 
sible to alleviate this parking question, which is 
of grave concern to the entire City of Chicago; 
and 

Whereas, Property owned by the Chicago Park 
District abutting the east side of Marine Drive 
and other land owned by the Chicago Park District 
is conveniently located to serve various areas ad- 
jacent to the lake shore through the establishment 
of underground parking facilities under such park 
land; therefore, be it 

Resolved, That the City Council of the City of 
Chicago hereby recommends to the Chicago Park 
District that it give prompt consideration to the 
matter of the establishment of underground park- 
ing facilities along the east side of Marine Drive 
and along or adjacent to the lake shore on the 
north and south sides of Chicago where parking 
problems of the type referred to exist. 

On motion of Alderman Kells the committee's rec- 
commendation was concurred in and said proposed 
substitute resolution was adopted.
